linda-stephens-figure-competition-training-posing-bodybuilding-womens-diet-darien-ctWelcome to Linda Stephens Fitness!

I look forward to helping you achieve your highest level of health and wellness.

A native of Natick, Massachusetts now residing in Fairfield County, Connecticut with my husband and two children, I initially had planned on doing only one figure competition just to get into fantastic shape and have pictures of myself on stage. My reasoning, so that one day I could look back and say I did something totally out of the box! Well, after taking 2nd place in my first show I had been bitten by the bug.

I discovered so many valuable benefits of figure competition:

  • Creation of a very clear and meaningful health goal
  • An opportunity to face and overcome internal and external barriers
  • Discovery of a community of health-conscious people, many of whom became life friends
  • New self-confidence and the ability to stand before an audience
  • The happy expectation that there’s always another opportunity on the horizon

Whether you’re considering figure competition or any other objective…

What goal in life would not be easier to achieve
and more enjoyable with better health?

My Approach to Personal Fitness, Nutrition and Competition Training:

  • Fully customized to YOUR unique situation
  • Sensitive to your feelings and needs
  • Motivational — everyone needs a cheer leader
